Just spotted this sweet little fox sunning itself in my back garden. When we first moved to South Africa when I was a child, my gran joked that we should watch out for the lions and tigers roaming the streets. But I almost never saw wild animals on the streets of Johannesburg. When I moved back to the UK, I went for a walk one night and was terrified when I saw a fox, remembering childhood stories in which the fox was always the villain. Now, of course, I realise that even in the centre of the London, foxes are pretty common. But I think this is the first time I've ever seen one in the day time like this. Cute, innit?
